“Productivity” or “Why can’t all weekends be like this?”

In a dramatic turn of events, I managed to pull off one of the most productive weekends on record, including: visiting my brother’s family at his sister-in-law’s, picking up his cat that I’m adopting (a white fur-ball named Baby), digging two window wells, installing two basement windows, hitting the tanner once, working at Westwinds all three services, reading the first half of Revelation, hosting a large group of friends for a viewing of Shrek 1 and 2, watching Any Given Sunday while cleaning the house and sitting down to watch The Crow to cap off the evening with a good bowl of tin roof ice cream.

Tired? Slightly. But I’m much more revived after a good weekend like this one than one where I accomplish nothing and wish I had it back to do all over again.

Oh–and in talking to my mother, i learned that Chase will actually be going to school tomorrow! That’s awesome news.

After being accessed by the school district, they felt he could handle attending school and being part of a special class for those with disabilities. It will be in the same building he was attending prior to his accident. They say they can have him ready for kindergarten next year, which means he won’t be behind much at all.

So, that was a very exciting development. It will also give my sister a decent break from watching him and allow her to have some time to herself, which is another blessing.
